LegalView Warns Proton Pump Inhibitor Patients of Potential Bone Fracture Risk Associated with Drug
Date:9/8/2008

LegalView recently reported on the risk of bone fractures among patients using proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs. The drugs are used to treat and reduce gastric acid within the stomach as well as other stomach/intestinal issues including ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), dyspepsia, some forms of stomach infections and Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 8, 2008 -- LegalView, the number one resource for everything and anything legal on the Internet, recently alerted patients taking http://proton-pump-inhibitors-ppi.legalview.com [proton pump inhibitor __title__ Proton Pump Inhibitor Risks] (PPI) drugs of the potential for serious bone fracture risks associated with taking the medication. A study published in a recent issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal found that patients using PPIs for continued use (5 to 7 years or more) are at an increased risk of developing hip, spinal or wrist fractures. According to the study, patients at the most risk include those of 50 years of age or older.

Individuals who are currently prescribed to any of the http://proton-pump-inhibitors-ppi.legalview.com [proton pump inhibitors __title__ Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuit] such as pantoprazole, rabeprazole, esomeprazole, lansoprazole and omeprazole are encouraged to contact an experienced pharmaceutical lawyer to better understand how to develop a potential http://proton-pump-inhibitors-ppi.legalview.com [PPI __title__ Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuit] lawsuit. Several of the PPIs are more commonly known under their brand names including Losec, Prilosec, Inhibitol, Somac, Protonix, Pantoloc, Rabecid and Aciphex.

PPIs are used to inhibit gastric secretion entering the stomach. A pump within the stomach that funnels gastric acids is stopped when taking PPIs. These drugs treat an array of conditions including peptic ulcer disease (PUD), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), prevention of stress gastritis, gastrinomas, dyspepsia, etc. However, the drugs may also stop the absorption of calcium while stopping the secretion of gastric acids thus causing bone fractures. The http://proton-pump-inhibitors-ppi.legalview.com [PPI side effects __title__ PPI Side Effects] also includes headache, nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, abdominal pain, dizziness and fatigue.

LegalView also offers details on other legal topics and offers readers a library of information portals relating to several controversial pharmaceutical drugs/products such as Avandia, Ketek and the Zimmer Durom cups.

Avandia is a type 2 diabetes drug that has continued to find its way into news headlines over the drug's side effects. Several studies have concluded that the http://avandia.legalview.com [Avandia risks __title__ Avandia Dangers] may cause serious complications for patients. The drug has been linked to early on-set osteoporosis, increased risk of bone fracture, heart failure and unstable angina. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to issue a recall or increase the drug's warnings, but individuals who show any signs or symptoms of the drug's risk should seek medical attention immediately.

Since 2004, Ketek has been prescribed to patients suffering from upper respiratory infections. The antibiotic from Sanofi-Aventis was recently under fire as reports of the drug's adverse effects began to surface. The FDA has been investigating accounts of liver disease and liver failure developing among Ketek patients. Additionally, patients of the antibiotic showing any signs of the http://ketek.legalview.com [Ketek side effects __title__ Ketek Class Action], which include yellowing or jaundice of the skin, are advised to discontinue use of the drug and consult a physician.

The Durom cup is an artificial hip socket component used in hip replacement surgeries. The company manufacturing the cup, Zimmer Holdings, has been selling the hip component since 2006. Within that time, the artificial hip socket has had nearly 12,000 Durom cups surgically implanted into patients across the country. However, physicians recently began to complain that the hip socket was failing in many patients. Since reports of the http://zimmer-durom-cup.legalview.com [Zimmer Durom cup failure __title__ Zimmer Durom Cup Recall] have began the company has halted production of additional Durom cups, however, no recall has been issued.
